A wide variety of fish species thrive in the crystal clear waters surrounding Mantigue Island. Vibrant colors greet your eyes as you snorkel in the peaceful waters. Be careful not to step on the corals or, worse, on the spiky spines of sea urchins. Ouch! There’s plenty of that at Mantigue, so, be extra careful.
During the start of summer (around March) this year, I was out on another island hopping mini adventure in Guimaras. And one of the most breathtaking sights along the way was a house built on a limestone rock formation with a commanding view of the sea and having its own private beach.
